Nikon D40 not vaporware
Thank the heavens that the Nikon D40 is not vaporware. Nikon has added the D40 into its digital SLR stable, and this entry-level camera looks set to be a best selller, offering great functionality at the affordable price of $599.95. Features of this interchangeable-lens digital SLR includes a 6.1 megapixel Nikon DX CCD image sensor and processing engine, both SD and SDHC memory card support, a lightweight body which is a joy to carry around, as well as a bunch of alternative exposure control tools to capture the best photos possible under any condition. Those who want to make the digital SLR jump should consider the Nikon D40 when it is released on December 1, 2006.
